The InnoChain journal #4 showcases material research results and reporting of the Second year colloquium organised by IAAC, as well as the presentation of the research exhibition “Prototypes”, focusing on direct full-scale testing of defined design criteria against real-world methods of realisation and production, and its integration with the industry.

The InnoChain network is a shared research training environment, examining how advances in digital design tools challenge building culture enabling sustainable, informed and materially smart design solutions. The network aims to train a new generation of interdisciplinary researchers with a strong industry focus that can effect real changes in the way we think, design and build our physical environment. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Marie Sklodowska-Curie.
